The Perfect Paragon (Agatha Raisin #16) by M.C. Beaton

“They turned out to be passionate love letters from Burt. It was evident he hoped to marry her as soon as she had finished school.”

Is Mabel Smedley as perfect as she seems? Agatha’s detective agency has been hired by Mr Smedley to prove Mabel is having an affair and it’s starting to seem like hard work. When her husband is murdered the team springs to action and the usual hijinks ensue. Combine that murder with the murder of a young girl and the body count is really starting to escalate in the otherwise sleepy village. Death by weed killer, a porn producer – who knew that Carsley and its surrounds could be such a den of iniquity?

The 16th instalment of Agatha’s adventures shows no signs of slowing down and Agatha has a couple of new hires in tow in the form of the intriguing, young, Harry Beam and of course all the familiar friends make an appearance. Naturally I read this at a cracking pace on my mobile phone again. At one point even while stuck on a normally 6 minute train trip that took an hour - thanks to Agatha I didn't lose my marbles and at least 2 murders got solved.


5 out of 5, but nobody is perfect.
